Waterman's was right across the street from us and we watched literally hundreds of people coming and going every day. So, we had to try it. The service was great and the food plentiful. My wife's shrimp were excellent (but she guarded her plate well.) I ordered the Crab cakes and was dissapointed because they were really bland. I recommend... More

This restaurant doesn't have a bad meal on the menu. As a local - friends and myself - love eating at this restaurant. When I have out of town company - this is definitely one of my restaurant choices. When you combine the food with the view (it is on the ocean) you can impress anyone! Parking gets messy so... More

Being a local I rarely go to the Oceanfront as "tourist" season starts. But because the weather has been so cold in Va Beach longer than usual I wanted to take advantage of the great sunny day and sit outside as close to the water as possible. Heading down Atlantic Avenue I ran upon Waterman's and thought this is perfect... More

Sit on the patio and enjoy a perfect breakfast of shrimp and grits with an orange crush. The best orange crush in Hampton Roads.

Had dinner late, almost kitchen closing time (10 pm). Service was OK, grilled tuna filet was perfectly cooked and well presented. Price worth it. Restaurant is just off the beach. Would consider coming back.

The food was disgusting, tasteless. I ordered broiled flounder. The skin was not removed, all I tasted was butter and salt. My husband ordered just seafood, and it was also drenched in butter. My daughter had a cheeseburger....McDonald's would have been better. This restaurant is a TGI Friday's with a view. Actually, TGI Friday's is better.

Orange Crushes is all that needs to be said. The beach is steps away and the drinks are delicious. You have the fancy dining upstairs and the relaxed bar downstairs(the best part). Valet parking is very convenient and the boys are well mannered. No doubt about it, a great hot spot. Recommend it to the fullest.

I have never been to Waterman's and wanted to have lunch by the ocean .for my birthday. Views are very pretty of the ocean and the restaurant itself is very nice. I do see it does have a lot of good reviews so I may try it one more time to see. I ordered a seafood plate it come with... More
